Choi Hyeong-woo (40, KIA Tigers) ranks first in personal RBIs in the Korean Professional Baseball KBO League.

However, Choi Hyeong-woo recently met with Yonhap News and said, “I am satisfied that I held the record for most RBIs, even if only for a moment. Choi Jeong will soon become the owner of the record.”

Jeong Choi (37, SSG Landers) said, “Senior Choi Hyung-woo is really amazing. Even now, he’s consistently increasing his RBI,” and said, “Currently, he’s in first place, he’s in first place.”

Choi Hyung-woo and Choi Jeong respect each other and are building ‘RBI records.’

As of the 13th, Choi Hyung-woo ranks first with a total of 1,577 RBIs.

Choi Hyung-woo, who hit a two-run home run against the Hanwha Eagles in Daejeon on June 20 last year and reached 1,500 RBIs, surpassing Doosan Bears coach Lee Seung-yeop’s personal career RBI record (1,498), broke the KBO record every time he hit an RBI. I’m doing it.

A shining milestone was also achieved: ‘Achieving 1,500 RBI for the first time in the KBO League.’

Choi Hyung-woo ranks third in this category again this year with 35 RBIs.

Choi Jeong is third with a personal total of 1,487 RBIs, following Choi Hyung-woo and coach Lee Seung-yeop, and is tied for fifth with 33 season RBIs.

Both Choi Hyung-woo, who is invincible, and Choi Jeong, who is in his late 30s, are still showing off the power of ‘RBI machines’.

The gap between Choi Hyung-woo and Choi Jeong’s total personal RBIs is ’90’.

Choi Hyeong-woo said, “I am a hitter who considers RBIs important. It is an honor just to be the first to reach 1,500 RBIs.” He added, “When I retire, Choi Jeong-woo will rise to first place next season. Even if it is only for a short period of time, I will keep the first place record.” “I am satisfied with what I have,” he said.

Choi Hyung-woo, who began his professional career by joining the Samsung Lions in 2002, was released after the end of the 2005 season and only after re-joining Samsung in 2008 did he hit an RBI in the first team.

Since then, he has steadily increased his RBI and is playing as a top hitter in the KBO League despite the odds.

Choi Jeong expressed his respect, saying, “Senior Choi Hyung-woo overcame difficulties (such as being discharged once) and rose to become the best hitter,” adding, “Although he was on a different team, I always thought Choi Hyung-woo was great.”

Choi Jeong started his professional career in 2005 and has been the starting third baseman since 2007.

Choi Hyung-woo praised his junior, saying, “Choi Jeong is a player who never slumps.”

In fact, Choi Hyung-woo and Choi Jeong-do do not stand at bat conscious of their ‘career record’.

Choi Hyeong-woo said, “When I hit 1,500 RBIs last year, I received a lot of attention, so I couldn’t help but be conscious of it,” and “Now, I stand at bat every day aiming to get on base and get RBIs.”

Choi Jeong-do, who is approaching 1,500 RBI for the third time in KBO League history, said, “After setting the KBO personal home run record, the burden of keeping records disappeared. I don’t have time to worry about anything other than dealing with the pitcher at every at-bat.”

In this way, one at-bat where he did his best was piled up and created a great record.

Choi Hyeong-woo, ‘No. 1 in KBO career RBIs’ and Choi Jeong-eun, ‘No. 1 in home runs (470) and 3rd in RBIs’, only intend to do their best in their next at-bat. 고스톱
